I don't understand any mail service not knocking on the door, but I can let that pass.
I cannot let pass the fact that despite signature conformation (I really wish I had screen caped the tracking page) a package was left outside on my porch in the rain. The signature conformation sticker no where to be found.
When I went to check the tracking it no longer said signature conformation. I believe the shipper when she says it WAS on there, because I saw it online before the change.
I was lucking she wrapped the petticoat (for my wedding dress) in plastic or it would have been ruined.
I've also had them shove a signature conformation inside the mailbox once, and it got bent up...but that's a different story.
It may just be the USPS in my area, but I thought I'd give out a warning.
Wrap EVERYTHING you send in plastic, and keep an eye on the tracking to make sure it stays signature conformation if that is how it is sent.
I've cross posted this to the Fursuit community, however I figured other artist would want to know this as well.
Sorry if this doesn't belong here.
